philosophy as governor. as president clinton said he does have a lot of brass. he's not talking about big change, but all he's talking about is a big rerun of the same policies that created so much hardship for so many americans. and y'all, governor romney has been out here making last-minute promises lately. said he's all about fighting for the middle class. says he cut taxes for everybody. and ask something from nobody, but the problem is we heard those promises before. keep in mind, governor romney lives a few miles south of here in the state of massachusetts. love massachusetts. [ cheers ] but during governor romney's campaign for governor down there, he promised the same thing he's promising now. said he'd fight for jobs and middle class families, but once he took office, he pushed through a tax cut that overwhelmingly benefited 278 of the wealthiest families in the state and raised taxes and fees to middle class families to the tune of $750 million. does that sound familiar to you? when asked about this, he says these weren't taxes, these were fees, but keep in mind, there were high

of the heavy artillery. that would be the former president, bill clinton of the here is cnn's white house correspondent. >> reporter: for president obama there is no more powerful surrogate than president clinton. something he acknowledged in an interview released thursday. the last time we had healthy broad-based groelth was when he was president and people remember that. so he can say things that people immediately grab on to. that's why clinton stars in campaign ads. >> president obama has a plan to rebuild america from the ground up. >> he headlines fundraisers and rallies. this one last week with bruce spring teen. they will be visiting florida, ohio and virginia together. >> he has particular appeal in the african-american community and i would guess among suburban women. the kind of folks that are torn. i think bill clinton would be a significant asset for the president. in may clinton undercut the obama campaign's main argument that mitt romney's business experience does not qualify him to lead the country. >> a man who's been governor and had a sterling business career crosses th
and not go about our daily business. >> septembers', secretary of state hillary clinton suggests the attack was a spontaneous attack about the antiis lamb video. >> there is no justification, none at all, for responding to this video with violence. >> white house press secretary jake carney explicitly blames the video the next day. >> these proprosts -- proe protests were in reaction to a video. we have no information to suggest it was preplanned attack. >> later that day, at the transfer of a ceremony at joint base andrews, clinton talks again about the video. >> we have seen rage and violence directed at american embassies over an awful, internet video that we had nothing to do with. >> the father of one of those killed, later tells fox news, clinton told him personally that they were going to arrest and prosecute the producer of the video. the next day, september 15th. california authorities haul nick call la, the man responsible for the video, and march him in from of tv cap razz, then the u.s. ambassador goes on five sunday talk shows, repeating the same story each time. >> this was no
clinton. >> alan cares about us conservatives. [ laughter ] >> a fascinating sub text to this debate is matt fine an important reporter for "new york times," how bill clinton may have hurt the campaign. and clearly obama forces going to the "new york times" saying, look we followed clinton's advice saying romney was right winger and he turned out to be moderate. somebody told him to put it in. clearly it's a obama forces. interesting thing on the democratic side. >> jon: one noted the left was confident that romney would scare the hell out of voters by coming across as, in the words of "new york times" editorialist a strutting warmonger. they started mocking him as peace nik mitt. >> there is definitely indications she shifted positions. alan is right. there were several conflicts that he has taken. it tells you a lot about where the debate is at and how close romney's people think it is. he felt he was going to in gralt iate himself. >> one tweeted, if you had no idea about the race the level of aggression would make you think he is behind. one said the president looked like a chall
.com and author of "the great american stick up up:show reagan republicans and clinton democrats enriched wall street while mugging main street street." rapid plus expeditious equals major. >> romney seems to be pivoting so far that he's presenting himself as obama 2008. that's what we heard in the foreign policy debate. and what was striking for me today is how often he referred to positively to the obama of 2008, and how he tried to sort of seize the mantle that obama claimed in 2008. he used the word "change" so many times. that wasn't an accident. he talked talked about how obama promised to be bipartisan. he wasn't. romney would do that. what this really shows me is that romney is trying so hard to be a sheep's in wool's clothing saying don't believe it. i'm going to be the moderate pragmatic guy. >> eliot: when you look at what he says it is the same 'ol stuff. and this is the same litany of policies that led us over the precipice in 2008. is that a fair and accurate critique? >> sure, romney is surely the greater evil here on every count, the foreign policy. he'll bring the neo-conserv
flexible. >> okay. john: when he debated hillary clinton he said -- he complained that government spent some much money on programs that don't work, and he was going to eliminate a whole host of them. >> we need to eliminate a host of programs that did not work, and i want to go to the federal budget line by line, pagg by page, programs that do not work we should cut. john: it would be great if he did. he did almost none of that. just lying. >> well, hold on a second. i mean, there is an awful lot of money that has been spen. much of it bad enough support, but the reality is that we entered the early days of his administration a huge fiscal problems that nobody was ready for, that nobody -- get at of th. john: he knew that when he was saying these things. the recession had already begun the housing bubble had burst. >> i don't think anybody knew it would be as bad as it turned out to be. so because it was that he had -- he really meant to cat. there are no programs that don't work that he could cut. he cut a couple tiny. john: clearly a lot of things out there. why does the do what he s
congress, and so he was forced, willy-nilly, if you're going to have a budget at all--and mr. clinton is going to discover this--you just have to go along, in the end, with congress. and he did not bankrupt the country. he did--he tried to control spending. he was just in too weak a position to do so. c-span: so you just wash your hands of any of the problems today that were brought about by supply-side economics. >> guest: well, the problems ex--they weren't brought about by supply-side economics. they were brought about, i would say, by irresponsible congressional expenditures. but it doesn't matter. the problems are real. i mean, they're with us. i mean, medicare, medicaid, things that originally were thought to involve the expenditure of perhaps a few billion dollars suddenly are s--going at the rate of tens of billions of dollars, which no one really anticipated, but which a thoughtful person might have-not anticipated, but say at some point, 'we have to take another look and check it out.' so i will defend ronald reagan's economic policies. i think he's been given a raw deal by

of president bill clinton. i mean, you are coming in at abc in the 90's. bill clinton, president, he had the impeachment lows. did you have to deal with any of the second term clinton problems? >> a good part of my first year at abc news was dealing with the clinton issues. i mean, the monitor lewinsky story broke ten months into my tenure i was done in cuba. the pope was visiting cuba. we had everyone down there. well over 100 people down there to cover this event. d'agata call one at when i was out to dinner from the desk in new york saying we have this investigation we have had going on that looks like it's going to break. there is this young intern who has told her close friend that she had a relationship, and a proper relationship with the president and i said, that's just ridiculous. that can't be right. we have no reason to believe she's telling the truth, so forget it. i went back in to dinner and about an hour they call back and said we have just confirmed that janet reno, the attorney general has formally and officially expanded the investigation into the whitewater, the whitew
from hillary clinton. he has a mandate in his affordable care act. there's always some movement toward the center in governance, as well as a move toward the center toward the general election because of the nature of the two party system a the nature of divided governance. >> i'm not sure i would call what happened in the last couple of years a movement toward the center. i thi of it as obama negotiating with himself with an intransigent right which used a its power to hold the country hostage, rather than finding common ground. >> so, let's talk about what you did and didn't learn. you've watched the four debates now. do you have any idea of how governor romney would manage to cut income tax rates by 20% o without increasing the deficit? or which tax deductions he would eliminate? or specifically, how he's goin to create the 12 million jobs he's promised? or what barack obama's going to do in his second term? do you have any sense of that? >> well, in the case the 12 million jobs, as we know, you don't have to do anything and you'll get 12 million jobs. any number of economists and
clinton days. yes, he is talking about change, he's casting himself as the change candidate and i think that is why they went out to iowa today, not to unveil any new economic proposals. you don't really do that in the final stage of a campaign. what they wanted to do was talk about this message that they unveiled yesterday here in ohio and that he is the candidate of not just change, but big change as he likes to say on the campaign trail. >> in terms of weather, brianna, have there been any changes to the president's schedule next week? you mentioned some of his stops. do we know how vulnerable those are to weather? >> yeah, that's right, he's heading to florida, he's heading to virginia. so certainly some of his stops are going to be vulnerable. we've already seen a change, this just came out publicly, anderson. he was supposed to head out to travel on monday to florida. his first stop. he's now going to be traveling on monday, as you know michelle obama canceled a new hampshire appearance on monday or pardon me, tuesday, because of weather concerns. vice president joe biden was supp
clinton in youngstown, ohio. orlando, florida. and then lastly, northern virginia right here in river city. we'll see how that goes on monday what the weather looks like. we're expected to get the brunt of it as you just heard between monday and tuesday. meanwhile the president, as you mentioned, has been giving interviews, talking about that fiscal cliff. the quote of the day yesterday you had it on the super, he promises to wash john boehner's car and walk mitch mcconnell's dog. turns out mitch mcconnell doesn't have a dog, in order to get something done to avoid that fiscal cliff everyone is predicting economic catastrophe. meanwhile, an nbc affiliate out of denver talked about some of the themes that he's working on and hitting mitt romney with. >> i fought for middle-class families in colorado and all across the country. that's the kind of president i think you want. and i'm looking forward to having the privilege of serving another four years. a lot of it is going to depend on colorado so i hope everybody takes advantage of early vote in colorado. you guys are always ahead of the cur
was running for secretary of state to succeed hillary clinton. >> he agreed with him on afghanistan, iraq, iran. the suggestion is that he was trying to tone down and become presidential. i don't know if that is the case. i think that he was stuck on his heels by obama's very direct challenge to him, and i don't think he looked very presidential at all. he looked like somebody who was captain of his talking points, and once he got past is talking points, all he could do was stare. >> another theory is that he was trying to reassure people he would not be crazy. >> he said a lot of nutty things during the primary like that russia is their biggest enemy, he would be willing to bomb iran tomorrow, trade wars with china on day one. thank god he pulled back on that stuff -- >> how do we know which mitt is mitt? really it was astonishing. to listen to that foreign policy enunciated, which was just a mirror -- to hear that and then to look back at what he said just weeks ago is to make the wonder, what is he really want to do as president? >> he wants to be president. [laughter] >> well, he is f
have a surplus when bill clinton left office. >> uh-huh. >> stephen: and were george w. bush's director of management and budget. who came in and chloroformed you and stole all the money? (cheers and applause) >> well, the answer is the dotcom bubble broke and the money people thought was coming did not show up. wouldn't have mattered if you were president, stephen, which maybe you will be one day. >> stephen: i thought about it. >> i know. >> stephen: now you have got this book here. people, governors who release books are often testing the waters for the presidency. are you thinking about jumping in? there are 12 days left. that's longer than the entire tim pawlenty campaign. >> i wrote the book in lew, actually, of running for president myself. i was just trying to contribute a few thoughts without-- without taking that on. >> stephen: you know what this book reminded me of? >> i'm afraid to ask, but what. (laughter) >> stephen: reminds me of my book, america again. saving america, america again. rebecome the greatness we never weren't. you know what, on amazon people who buy this bo
or that type of thing, like just more governance rather than role. >> during president clinton's term as you know, you may recall, vice president gore was in charge of the we invent government initiative. >> jon: what is that name again? i was making a joke. (laughter) >> okay. maybe i missed that. >> jon: no, you got it i think you got it. >> but under president obama, everything is-- almost everything that can be subjected to scrutiny and review has been. and the statistics will show that there wasn't a growth of regulation during president obama. there has been a reduction. but this is about the election and what goes forward. >> jon: for you it is more philosophical this time t this is a big philosophical election. >> when i say-- all of our names are on the ballot but that is so unimportant, even democratic and republican. what is important is that we save medicare, the republicans want to sever the medicare guarantee, end it as a guarantee for seniors. that to me is the most important thing that is on the ballot when you think of the impact it has on seniors and their families. and you
and you met hillary clinton. when they had this service. >> that is, correct. at andrew's air force base when the bodies were flown in. >> sean: you said the president couldn't look you in the eye and it was like shaking hands with a dead fish. >> that's exactly right. >> sean: and so you felt he couldn't look you in the eye and that basically he felt no empathy and you said the same thing pretty much about hillary clinton? >> right. what happened was he came through there kind of after everyone else had been in the room circulating and he came over and shook my hand, you know, i wanted to do more than just shake his hand so i kind of put my arm around his shoulder to have just a little bit of physical warmth, not a major hug but just a small one and he kind of -- it wasn't in a powerful voice it was more of just a whiney little voice i'm sorry. i could tell my his voice he wasn't even sorry. it would be like a little kid that is told by the teacher to go apologize to johnny out on the play ground and when looked at me his face was pointed towards me but he couldn't look me in the eye. h
people wanted to use it. but according to the new york times story, clinton, former president clinton said no, it am not work. hit him on being too conservative and they followed his advice and now they are back tracking and trying to use the flip flopper issue again. it is very systematic of the lack of a message for obama. here nine days before the election. they are changing the negative message on romney having spent 7 months talking about other stuff. >> pointing out 10 days a way. and the porls are tightening up. when it comes to the swing states, you can antiwin without ohio. you don't feel everything hingos that state, why? >> undecided vote always goes against the incumbent and significantly less propensity of the obama people to vote than the romney people to vote just in terms of motivation. i believe that you start off with 179 electoral votes and states that mccain won and north carolina and indiana and remember marginal obama states and usually republican. and that bringings you up to 204 and then you have florida, colorado and virginia. where the poems that i seen all s
to talk about his time as governor during the clinton boom era. but served during the bush imitation to become a cabinet secretary. he supported his policies to have to run the tax cuts -- to have two unfunded tax cuts. i opposed the war and iraq. under his watch at the department of health and human services, it created a program that david walker called the most fiscally irresponsible policy in this country since the 1960's. almost $5 trillion in debt got us into this mess. >> governor, will you respond to some of these points? take your time. >> she has missed it just about everything -- misstated just about everything. there's been a 10 trillion dollar increase says she's been in office. i never protect bill in to give anybody a tax break of anything right now -- put in a tax bill to give anybody a tax rate of anything right now. if you want a flat tax without skimming ior scamming the system, you can do it on halftime purity put on the gross revenue, said it in and still have enough time to go to the andrigerator get a beer watch the second half. i was running for the department
an identifier as who we were. we were the choom gang. >> bill clinton, you know, famously said he didn't inhale. obama, on the other hand, not only inhaled but was sort of the ringleader of the idea of total absorption, what they call ta, where you had to make sure that everything got inhaled. take roof hits while you're in the car. >> i think it was important to barry because perhaps it did fill a void that wasn't apparent at the time. i don't think any of us thought of it that way, but now in retrospect, we look back and went, hey, we really were a family. this was really, really cool. >> narrator: obama's senior yearbook tells the story. >> in his yearbook he thanks "gramps and toot," who are stan and madeline, his grandparents, and the choom gang, and ray for the good times. who was their drug dealer. who was kind of a hippie who could get them the good stuff. and he doesn't thank his mother. >> narrator: by the time he graduated from punahou, obama had decided to leave hawaii. >> one of the central themes that i find from his life is his intense desire to avoid being trapped. his mother ha

are not out of the question. remember under bill clinton, i was proud to be his labor secretary, 22 million net new jobs were created over eight years. so 12 million -- >> do you remember the job growth, though? you were averaging over 4% job growth during that period. >> yes. and the economy is larger and more people. i'm not saying we're going to do it. i think the 12 million is very optimistic. it is possible with a recovery, with a strong recovery, policies specific policies, i don't think there's a magic bullet, i don't think either governor romney or the president has any particular secret up his sleeve that is going to generate a lot of new jobs suddenly. >> right. and it's a tough one because it becomes a wash. they both made the same promise. the issue is what kind of jobs they're going to be. that's been a criticism of president obama. he has made up for all the jobs that have been lost on his watch, but as often happens, the recovery has created jobs that are not as lucrative as the ones before. the president's plan now that he's unveiled focuses on manufacturing jobs. he says he
. the republicans made a calculation after eight years of clinton that they were too far to the right, and needed to be in the middle for the national election, they needed compassionate conservativeism, to bush they sort of saw their bill clinton. but bush spent 1999 developing a real program. later called it big government conservatism. but he had a real plan there to create a greater federal role in education. he had a real plan there for a federal role on prescription drugs. they developed a vision. the republican vision -- >> hence the immigration bill. >> exactly. this is what he ran on in 2000. so there was some real substance there. what mitt romney is doing right here, he was far to the right in the primary. gave the conservative base everything they wanted. in the republican platform. this is one of the most conservative republican platforms we have seen. he did nothing at the convention from a policy standpoint to move away from that. he waited until october 3rd to start in a debate to articulate moderate-sounding outcomes. not policy, but outcomes. things that sound pleasing to modera
about president bill clinton, president george w. bush, why are those not fatal mistakes? >> i think they're at two things going on. one is what else is going on in the world of the time? john mccain made a comment about he was asked a question about what would he do in iran and someone said an air mail message and he went on saying singing bob bob ran. very few people remember that a lot of things were happening in the world at the time. nobody carried it on. i compare that to hillary clinton's statement about being under fire in bosnia. it was time after time after time until the media started to say well is this really chew and all of a sudden they pulled up a picture of her being greeted at the airport being greeted by a girl with a bunch of flowers and there is a general in the ground saying there was no fire and the obama people start to say you might want to look at her credibility on these things and it was so dramatic that we don't like people to lie to us. this is about as close as a presidential candidate obama looking at fellow democrats saying she lied to us. who else is
